I’ve been playing for a week now and I’ve been doing pretty well on a bunch of servers, acquired full arsenals of weapons and armour and made lots of friends. Most of the bases I stayed at belonged to friends, though.
I made the mistake of using a window in a few older bases but I think I’m getting the hang of it all.
How does my base look? (not impervious to C4 attacks but I think it’s small enough that people wouldn’t waste c4 on me anyway lol)
His point werent raiders, but griefing.
If you leave foundation like taht someone can just place 3 walls around it and trap you inside.
Rendering your house useless, unless you are willing to waste c4 on getting back inside.
I’ve seen plenty of bases that looked nice. If there weren’t already looted, I was normally in a 30 seconds. My advice: embrace security, forget aesthetics.
As for replacing the barricades on the porch with walls, it will certainly be more secure. The barricades can be chopped down, whereas the walls will require C4.
My original comment was indeed about preventing trolling of your base. A doorway and a door are quick and cheap to build, and chances a good a drive-by troll will ruin your day. You should also check that they can’t just stick another foundation in front of your door and block you in that way. Its usually better to build on a slope where the drop off creates a natural limitation to adding new foundations.
